Cross Stitch Christmas Tree Ornament

Simple, yet effective.

Just stitch your design, then fold and crease it so that the corners meet and stitch the edges neatly.

Attach a little bling to hang from the bottom & a string to hang your handiwork from the tree, and you're done!

Christmas Poinsettia

A beautiful poinsettia blossom in red & green.

Did you know that the red "petals" of the poinsettia are really leaves?

The actual flowers are the tiny yellow parts in the centre of the bloom.

Joy, Christmas cross stitch pattern

Used here to make what looks like a drawer sachet or pincushion.

This would look just as nice framed or as a Christmas card insert.

A Tribute to Mary Magdalene

Now, I just want to let you know that I'm not religious.

That said, this is a lovely piece, and I hope you enjoy stitching it :)
